seems in terms of interest rates, which is what consumers pay most attention to, lowest in history, could he have any other tricks up his sleeve? >> when interest rates are low, it's not encouraging us to save. yet, we're saving so much money. >> not encouraging people to buy houses because they're afraid for their jobs. >> they're afraid for their jobs. he doesn't have all that many tricks. what people are watching, what he will do if anything and what the rest of the government will do to help the housing market stabilize. that makes people feel a lot less wealthy and they don't spend money. >> big picture with all of this and we called it the beige report. what do we know about where we are as a country economically right now? >> we are really in a middle zone. people are not sure if we're going up or down. some people are afraid of a double dip and you're seeing that in consumer spending, everyone has been very careful. >> consumer confidence, so important, maybe more than ever before. thanks for coming in. coming up in our next half

and she talked to rachel maddow right here. she was doing some sarah palin bashing, as well. last night she said she wanted to talk to rachel because republicans shouldn't just appear on fox news. she said both parties should work with everyone and talk to everyone. >> i know what it feels like to be alienated. i talk very candidly on how i felt alienated on the campaign. whe i worry about the direction of politics in general. we're so polarized and i think it's a very scary place. >> you can watch rachel maddow right here weeknights on msnbc. the judge, i'm sure, didn't mean it as a compliment when he compared snooki to lindsay lohan. the reality star's sentence is lighter, but the judge warned snooki she is on a self-indulge self-indulgent, self-destructive path. jeff rossen who has been waiting patiently to tell this story.
10:37 am
>> i will wait hours to talk about snooki. you have to understand the background here to understand why she was sentenced. back in july she was drunk on the beach, the jersey shore, of course. she was stumbling on to people and wednesday she appeared in court and just before the judge sentenced her, he went there calling snooki a lindsay lohan wanna be. >> ouch. >> on jersey shore snooki lets it all hang out. >> i love guido. >> but in court on wednesday she buttoned up. snooki was facing up to 90 days in jail. police in seaside heights arrested snooki in late july while taping the show "jersey shore" she was drunk on the beach, yelling and stumbling on to people. >> i would definitely like to apologize to the seaside cops. when i saw what happened and everyone told me what happened,
10:38 am
very embarrassed. this is not like me. i've never been in this situation before, so i definiteldefinit definitely would like to apologize to anyone i hurt. >> how much of this episode was scripted by your show. if this was scripted, only you can determine if it's worth trading your dignity for a paycheck. >> it was not scripted, sir. >> judge murray was just getting started, getting even more harsh. >> you seem to be acting like lindsay lohan wanna be in this matter. going through life rude, profane, obnoxious and self-indulgent is not the way you want to live your life. >> snooki stood there and took it. her lawyer jumped to her defense saying she lived a good life with the love of animals and charity work. >> this was a bad day, i think we all have those days from time to time, judge. >> reporter: in a plea deal with prosecutors, snooki slipped away without jailtime.
10:39 am
interfering with the enjoyment of the quiet use of the beach by others. her punishment 2rx $00 fine and two days of community service. with one day already served at a nearby zoo. snooki forced to give back to the town that made her famous. >> there's actually a local ordinance here at msnbc, don't disturb the peace of chris jansing while others are around. >> what was that quote, that is my favorite line of the day. >> yeah. it's funny. local ordinances. so, that's part of this deal. look, they drop all the other criminal charges. they were misdemeanors mostly. by the way, dena lohan commented on this, the fact that lindsay lohan's name was brought up in court and said she's disappointed in the judge and says it shows a lack of professionalism. >> you don't think his little remarks were scripted, do you? >> he delivered it too well. or the judge is a star, it's possible, too. wealthy guy. >> he'll get his own reality show. let's face it. new hope in new orleans,

10:44 am
day, as they have ever year, with two parties. miguel is in portland, oregon. >> chris, good morning. events to mark kyron horman's birthday today and this weekend. the little boy turns 8 today and he also would have started the third grade here earlier this week. despite the best effort of investigators, there has been no sign of kyron since the day he vanished. this should be a day of celebration for his parents, instead, an ongoing reminder of a nightmare that continues for them. their son disappeared from school here on june 4th shortly after his stepmother, teri horman dropped him off. his biological parents have continued to point the finger at her saying she is somehow involved in kyron's disappe disappearance. horman's lawyer called any speculation about her involvement in kyron's disappearance a witch hunt. she appears to be at the strfce
10:45 am
of this investigation, no charges have been filed. the 8-year-old hasn't been seen in months, but no one has forgotten kyron's story. >> i'm joined now by john walsh, host of "america's most wanted" which is about to enter its 24th season. good to see you, john. >> nice to see you again. >> first let me ask you about kyron. it has been 14 weeks since he has been missing. his dad has been out there registering him for school, for soccer, throwing a party for him today. must be an incredibly difficult time. how do you even get up in the morning? how does a family cope? >> i think having gone through it, the two weeks looking for adam were the worst two weeks of our lives followed by the most horrible result of finding out that adam was murdered. but you have to remember who the victim is. you have to remember who's out there, who's in trouble. it's his son. and i think it's wonderful that he's saying we hope we have a
10:46 am
jaycee dugard ending. we hope we have an elizabeth smart ending. he's hoping we're going to get this little boy back and i'm going to keep up the fight and keep the media's attention, we're talking about it because he had these birthday parties and that's how you keep your child's face in there. because once the media goes away, your child is just another missing kid on a poster at the national center for missing and exploited children. so, i think it's wonderful that the dad is saying, i am going to put my pants on, put my boots on, go to work, keep looking for this little boy. >> in the case of a jaycee dugard or elizabeth smart, interest does wane and we all know the statistics. after 24, 48 hours, the likelihood that a child -- >> four hours. >> four hours a child is not found alive, then the statistical probability is that they're not going to be playing in the back yard again. >> correct. >> there seem to be no answers in this case for kyron.
10:47 am
i mean, his stepmother a lot of suspicion has surrounded her, but there are no arrests and she has not been named as a suspect. what does your gut tell you or the facts tell you about this case, john? >> the police are keeping their cards close to their vest. nowadays you have to build a case before a d.a. will ever move. i mean, d.a.s are so cautious and conservative these days. you almost to have to have the smoking gun in the video before they move ahead. it's a whole different day in age. but, there should be a continuing dual investigation. but the most disturbing thing is the stepmom refused to do any media. every parent of a missing child knows the media is key to finding missing kids. we found 40 missing kids on "america's most wanted" because we're on television, prime time and viewers get to see the case. so, for the stepmom refusing to
